The Fair Housing Act of 1968 promised to deliver equal opportunity and an end to discriminatory housing practices. Join Ferguson for a conversation on the successes and challenges of the FHA in the 50 years since its passage, as well as what’s next here in Washington. You'll hear from him about the FHA's work, how our state’s new source of income discrimination protections can be implemented, and more during this lunchtime interview with Emily Alvarado, manager of policy and equitable development in the city of Seattle Office of Housing. The interview will include a Q&A.
Ferguson is Washington state’s 18th attorney general. He made national headlines this year for his office’s work uncovering housing discrimination against veterans.
This program is presented in partnership with the Housing Development Consortium Seattle-King County and the city of Seattle Office of Housing.
